creation, economic growth, and economic performance by every measure than the years after george w. bush reduced the highest marginal tax rates. the evidence seems to point in the opposite direction, higher taxes on the wealthy help the economy, and don't hurt the economy. >> eliot: that is exactly the point that warren buffet has made over and over again. the preeminent investor over the years. he said i'm a capitalist. i want to make money. listen to robert reich. from an ideological point of view it seems to me from the inception of the republican party they want to cut taxes cut taxes this has been an effort to starve the beast. to say that there is no money for government, and you must cut the agenda. that seemed to be the agenda from the early reagan revolution revolution. >> david stockman came up with the phrase starve the beast. he understood if you go deeper and deeper into debt and reduce tax rates in particularly on the wealthy, at the same time everybody else is just getting by the minimum wage became stagnant in the 80s. the middle class paid less taxes and the wealthy pai

my lips. no new taxes. >> read my lips, no new taxes. george h.w. bush hammered that mantra to win the white house in 1988. but just two years later, the reagan deficits were skyrocketing and president bush was forced to change his most famous line. >> long and bitter battle over the budget officially ended last night. president bush put his signature on the deficit reduction package, including $140 billion in tax increases. >> tax increases. that was a turning point for the modern republican party. the right wing went crazy. and george bush lost re-election. since then the party's been committed to never compromising on the tax issue, no matter the deficit. no congressional republican has voted for an increase in taxes since 1990. think about it. for nearly a quarter of a century, no new income taxes. in the current congress, 236 house republicans vowed never to raise taxes. 40 gop senators also kept that pledge. even president george w. bush, the man who got us into two wars we didn't pay for. the president who exploded our deficit. he insisted the solution to our problems were m

, brought to us by george w. bush, and all fairness. >> well, i think the point here is that when people make comparisons, comparisons are relevant because you can run the numbers and say in terms of gdp -- relation to gdp or never, we are not quite as bad as greece or portugal or never, but they are just talking about a few ring keating billions. a trillion word is really unique to the united states. and i think that is what is going to kill us, the absolute numbers. germany can afford to bailout greece. nobody can afford to bailout the united states, and i would agree actually with bill archer that i think he understated. if you take the total debt situation, you're talking about just shy of three-quarters of a million dollars for the -- per american family. so you get a cup of coffee from a waitress in the diner, think of loading three-quarters of a million dollars of debt on to her shoulders for what? for what? does nothing to show for. lou: her children and their children that will be paying a large measure of that. great to have you with us. making spirits bright. and after america

of 1990 at andrews air force base where george h.w. bush went in there. we forget now how incredibly overwhelming the deficit story was at that point. you know, you look at that administration. the coming in, just no one thought they could do anything. it's not unlike the conversations we're having now. and they went in, they did the deal, president bush had to shift from read my lips to as only he could put it, read my hips. and it was good for the country, it created a political dynamic that cost president bush the election in 1992, and which we're still living, because that gave us grover norquist, et cetera. >> let's get to grover norquist in a minute, but i do have a question. the gop plan consists of $2.2 trillion in savings over a decade. that includes raging the eligibility age for medicare from 65 to 67. and lowering cost of living increases for social security benefits. they also propose overhauling the tax code to generate $800 billion in new revenue. but without raising taxes on the wealthy. in a letter to the president, leading republicans compared their plan to one ersk

and former chairman of president george w. bush's council of economic advisers. becky and i just distilled this argument down off camera when i was reciting what someone just wrote in. there are more republicans in washington than democrats if you just add up the house, the senate, a tnld president. becky says, yes, but more powerful ones are democrats. >> yes. >> meaning you've got some cincinnati -- >> my point is it's like monopoly. do you buy baltic or park place. >> my point is if you're passing a bill -- >> you can't do it without all three. >> it doesn't matter who's more powerful, greg. and there are guys in the house that cohold some pretty powerful cards. >> absolutely. i think what we see now is these two cards hurtling toward each other and the question is who's going to swerve. i think there's a lot at stake right now for both political parties and think if we go off the fiscal cliff for very long the economy will almost certainly go into a recession. if it didn't, the economists are going to have to revise all our models. so i think it could occur if we go very long. and if w
and regretting that as much as george w. bush saying he looked into vladimir putin's eyes and saw his soul. this is, after all -- please explain to us, if you will, while all the gushing goes forth from the white house and others, explain how we got to this point where the muslim promised after mubarak's fall that they would not seek power and then they grabbed ultimate power and then he consolidated power and then he crushed the judiciary on thanksgiving day, and now we're sitting here wondering whether in the words of rich lowery we're in a position where it's meet the new pharaoh, same as the old pharaoh. >> well, this comes up in our interview as well. there are two lines of thinking on this. so some would argue and morsi himself would argue that he was simply trying to protect the constitutional process from a judiciary that was pro mubarak, that was trying to actually quash this democratic process and thwart democracy and freedom in egypt. that's the pro morsi line of thinking. the other line of thinking is that the muslim brotherhood is more hard line than they would claim to be, th
percent of the vote. >> so in 2000 you got 80 plus percent of the vote? >> not too bad. >> and george w. bush won the presidency. >> i see where you're going. >> no. i'm just saying, just people need to look at the fact that there's more than one reality. barack obama wasn't the only person who won. i'm not saying this to denigrate the president or elevate the president. i'm explaining the negotiations right here. you get 80% -- i got 80%, you know, when i ran in, you know -- actually ran unopposed in '98. in '9d6 i got 83%. i didn't give a damn what they said. they didn't call and say i got elected, joe, with 52% of the vote, you've got to go with me. i said that's great, mr. president, i got 80%. >> he probably did do that because he tried to make social security reform the centerpiece. >> right, and it didn't work. >> republicans didn't support it. >> it didn't work. david? >> joe, isn't one of the big questions here what boehner ultimately does is a legislative strategy, not just trying to deal with folks who won in their districts and who are opposed to taxes, but does he put a bil
because now there comparisons this morning being made between president obama and president george w. bush overplaying a mandate, one through the election but overplaying it to the point where it would backfire as it did in president bush's case. >> what the president has asked for is 1.6 trillion net of new revenue. if you're going to get the kind of major entitlement reform that i and others believe you need to do to make sure that medicare and social security and other programs exist 20 years from now, there's that relationship to making sure there's a big enough revenue number. what he's laid out in terms of the rates just gets you a trillion. you will need net additional 500 billion beyond that i don't think he's overasked. everybody knows for those of us that have been successful, we'll pay more. more semantics about what format. let's have rates go back up. if we can really exercise the kind of discipline and tax reform that simpson-bowles and gang of six talked about it, we need to do that. >> speaker boehner would argue he's put a solution on the table that he'll compromise on ded
